The sE Electronics T2 is a great studio condenser for sources where a clear low and midrange are an absolute must. Balanced, and complimentary to a wide range of sources, the lows are well balanced across the frequency spectrum and the highs are extremely flat with just a pleasing hint of air around 10kHz.
Here's what sE Electronics say about the T2
This mic is the ultimate combination of solid state performance and versatility. Based on the chassis and feature spec of the acclaimed 4400a, but with the highly specialised capsule of the original Titan, it delivers full and perfectly balanced mid and low frequencies, while its Titanium capsule produces un-hyped but ultra-detailed HF response.
It is thus ideally suited for percussive recordings, including studio use for drums (and of course percussion), picked guitar, hammer action on piano, kick drum, slap bass etc.
More, it is the ideal broadcast mic for spoken word; since the intelligibility of any speech recording comes with good definition of HF (the percussive elements of speech such as 'p' and 't' sounds), it is especially important for any mic used to deliver great HF response. However, simply hyping the HF with an EQ bump can cause the sound to be sibilant and harsh sounding. The T2 delivers perfectly balanced HF response due to its very fast HF transient response, giving exceptional intelligibility without the hype.
Perfect for percussion, perfect for spoken word.
